My dearest daughter and I are quite stir-crazy - and it is making both of us irritable.
Fighting with weariness yesterday, I slumped against the couch and closed my eyes for a moment. I was on the floor playing peg board with Selena. We were stacking the pegs, and I had two in my closed fist.
I noticed that she stopped playing, and through my partly closed eyes I saw her peering at me with concern. She gently opened my hand, pulling on my fingers one by one. She took a peg from my hand and held it right in front of my eyes.
"Okay Momma!" she said, "Awwww Momma."
She briefly laid her head against mine - no matter that she injured my nose in the process - and then looked at me closely.
"Mommy is all better!" I said with a big smile, pulling her close for a hug.
She seemed quite pleased with herself, and I do thank God for my little comforter!
May God continue to build that nurturing spirit in her.
